ST provides tools for system designers to evaluate Dual Interface EEPROM product features. Those tools help customers determine the remote operating distance they can expect from the device and the impact of the reader antenna, as well as the impact of reader and IC antenna sizes on the overall system performance. They also allow evaluation of :
- Interaction of I²C and RF modes
- Entire memory, partitioning,
- lock mechanisms,
- password protection.
All tools come with an I²C programmer, an RF reader, two different reference antennas with I²C connector. Connections to host computers are USB based.
